    I have the answer. When the say, british and dutch immigrants came to africa, they took the people's natural wealth. they also destroyed their land, raped their women, etc. Because of this, civil wars and rebels were created amongst the nations due to hate towards europeans. However, the whites thought they were the best, so they controlled the economy and were elite. When they left, the elite was gone and a nation full of rebels and widespread poverty were gone. terrorists and other bad people saw this as an opportunity to control nations. more civil wars. look at sudan for example. this is what happened. the people tend to blame the white man because they think they are the ones who got them where they are. Some things are their fault some aren't. I'm not being racist to whites or anything because i am white, but this really happened. hope my answer helped :)

    Because it was the white men that came in and destroyed the country why do you think there are so many corrupt people after diamonds in africa..Not everyone blames whites. Half of the time those poor countries have corrupt goverments jamaica is one because I should know since I am jamaican and haiti is another one as well.

    Never have.

    But the poverty you see in African Countries and in Latin American countries are due to Imperialism-- which was done by European governments. So White's, in a way, are to blame.--- At least the Governments of White nations.

    Africa is full of natural resources, but outside companies, that are usually controlled by whites, come in and take advantage of the resources available. The people let them do it because they are starving and these people, while taking advantage of them, allow them to live to see another day.
